Thor's Day

Calendar of the Sun

TEr is a son of Odin and Jord, and is one of the most powerful of the Gods.  Thor is the God of Strength and Storm who governs the weather, sending the life giving rain to the farmers fields.  Unrivalled in strength, Thor is the embodiment of pure, raw might and power which can be felt upon the intense air of thunderstorms and seen with each flash of lightning.  Thursday is named after him.

Color:  Blue
Element:  Air
Altar:  Upon a blue cloth lay a bowl of rainwater, a cup of mead and a Thor's hammer.
Offerings:  Mead libation.  Offering your strength to others.   
Daily Meal:  Goat meat.  Mead.   

Invocation to Thor

Hail, Thor, Lord of the Hammer!
Lord of the Storm, rumbling chariot
That tears across the sky,
Lord who speaks plainly
And has no time for intrigue
And subtle ploys,
Protector of the common man,
Warrior beloved by farmers,
Help us to untwist our tongues
And speak the fiery truth
Hurled blazing like a hammer-bolt
Across the open sky!

(The cup of mead is passed around, and each drinks for Thor, saying what first comes into his mind, like a lightning bolt of truth.  The remainder of the mead, and the rainwater, is poured out as a libation.  Then the Mjollnir is passed and each lays it on their heart and swears to make their word be as a bond of iron.)
